I was recently given the opportunity to review the fabulous Artza Box, not just once but twice! Artza Box is a quarterly subscription box that comes to your home from the Holy Land; Israel. In it you will find some amazing, artisan products from various locations in Israel. So join me as we explore the Artza Premium Box I received from Galilee and the one I had previously received with Bethlehem being the location theme!
While I did receive a box to review and show to my readers, I was in no other way compensated for this review. I am sharing my experience unboxing this live so my review is my own opinion and I was not paid to endorse the product
What is Artza Box?
Artza is Hebrew for “towards the Land” and they selected this name because they wanted to convey a sense of coming ‘towards the land’ of Israel right in the comfort of your own home!
Here I share an unboxing of the Bethlehem Artza Box with you so you can see it as I explored (with great anticipation) the contents!
My Review of the Galilee Artza Box
I know I summed up a lot of this in the video but this box contained so many wonderful products, it is difficult to say which is my favorite. But I do have to say I loved the olive oil.
The fact that this olive oil was a collaboration between an Arab woman and a Jewish woman just warmed my heart. In a time when there is so much we see on the news about hatred in that region, we miss that there is also so much love.
Arabs and Jews live side by side in Israel, with Arabs serving on the Israeli Knesset in fairly large numbers. What you see on the news is typically when something bad happens. But we don’t see the good. And this product, while to some seems to ‘just be olive oil’ represents hope and love to me.
This is the kind of thing that Artza Box promotes. They bring together people. They bring together artisans and showcase products that you may otherwise never see…and collaborations you may otherwise never see.
I won’t single out any other products as being my “favorite” because that would not be possible. I will let you decide from the video what you would love from this box.
But I cannot say enough about this company and what it is doing. So if you would like to try a subscription, you can scroll below to Learn More About Artza Box and get a discount as well!
I would love to see my readers show their support for such a great opportunity for artisans in Israel to be seen.
My Review of the Bethlehem Artza Box
After the unboxing, which obviously is brief out of necessity, I had a chance to explore each of the items and I have to say I am SO impressed with the beauty and quality of all the artisans’ work.
The postcards were one of my favorite items. Each had a beautiful black and white scene from Israel, from Eilat to Jerusalem and much more! I already have some picked out that we are going to frame and put up in our house.
Another one of my favorites (as if I could choose…they are ALL wonderful) was the plate from Bethlehem. It is so beautiful!
Of course, the chocolate is not shabby either! I am never one to turn down good Israeli candy!!
Speaking of Israeli candy, I am a HUGE fan of Halvah which is like a delicious sesame/tahini fudge-like candy (for lack of a better way to describe it). Our friends bring some over for us all the time when they come for Shabbat dinner (in fact I have some delicious marble Halvah in my kitchen right now that they brought over for Hanukkah)! So I was so excited to see the halvah butter and cannot wait to whip up a batch of cookies with it!
What I enjoyed most about the box was the connection to the artisans and to the land of Israel.
As a Messianic Jew, these products made me feel closer to my homeland and I cannot tell you how moving it was to look through those postcards I mentioned earlier and seeing all those special moments that mean so much to me and my heritage.
I cannot recommend this subscription enough. I was truly amazed at the quality and the care that went into each artisan creation.
